    Hi ladywinn,

    I don't think the light engine optical assembly is the problem. The colors were perfect with the original color wheel. I ran into this same problem with a Samsung HL-P5063. With the original color wheel, the colors were perfect until it was replaced with a new one. When it was replaced, the faces were blue. The problem was that the original color wheel was different from the new one. The original uses an air bearing type motor but the new ones is a standard bushing type. To correct the problem, you re-position the jumpers on the DMD board but I haven't been able to find it. I don't know if the RCA uses the same procedure or not. I still cannot find the jumpers. Since the orginal color wheel showed a perfect color and white balance, I don't think the optical light engine is the problem. If the light engine is the problem, the colors should be off with the original colorwheel.

If a DLP suspect first the lamp, then the color wheel, which are the two most common failure parts in this set.

Color wheel faces lamp--look to see lamp not shattered inside and color wheel not missing parts of the plastic wheel at the same time as lamp is removed--it faces the lamp.

I have replaced a color wheel for a DLP Samsung TV but some colors does not appear making every face turned blue with less definition


Hello luis_crocchi,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: You have replaced the color wheel, but the light engine (jet) will probably need to be replaced also.
You will also have to have the color wheel and jet tuned (timed) back to factory specs by a TV Repairman as well. If timing and lighting are out of sync, the picture will be also.

Have a great day!

Replaced the color wheel on a Samsung DLP


Did you replace the color wheel yourself ? Sometimes you have to remove a small black jumper on the DM module on the light engine and that will remove the greenish but sometimes adjustments also need to be made in the service menu.

Color is wrong after color wheel replacement


Hello,

You probably replaced a bearing colorwheel, and it was replaced with a bearingless. If you look inside the TV on the back of the light engine (the silver box in front of and to the left of the color wheel), there should be a jumper (that connects two wires coming out) toward the bottom of it in a recessed little hole. That jumper should be removed if the color wheel was replaced with the air bearing type. Just grasp it gently with a pair of needle nose pliers, and pull it out slowly.

This should restore a normal color operation, but there might be some other adjustments that need to be made if it doesn't clear it up completely.

I hope this helps you...

I have found that this color wheel comes with a set of instructions that includes getting into the service menu and setting the index for the new color wheel. If the instructions were not with the color wheel, you will need the DVD for this model to find the information on entering the service menu and setting up the color wheel.
